What Causes a Golf Slice? | How to Fix a Slice

06/24/2016 It is one of the most common swing mistakes. There is a lot of incorrect information out there suggesting how to fix a slice. A slice describes what happens when the flight of the golf ball curves from left to right (for the right-handed golfer—the opposite for lefties).

Angle of Attack: A Definition of the Term You Need To Understand (VIDEO)

03/01/2016 One fundamental definition when discussing the golf swing is the ‘angle of attack.’ Though golf jargon can be filled with technical language that is difficult to dissect, ‘angle of attack’ is fairly simple: it is the angle the center of the club head (the sweet spot!) has at the moment of impact with the golf ball. There are three basic directions that golfers use to define the angle of attack. The club head can be traveling down, which is called a negative angle of attack. It can be traveling level, or neutral, which is called zero. Finally, it...
